Marios Schwab Moving to New York for Halston, But Keeping Own Line in London

>> Marios Schwab's appointment to head up Halston just came two days ago, and already he's feeling the gravity that comes with a major fashion post: "Of course I feel the pressure. It's a huge challenge but fashion at the moment needs innovation. . . I'm just trying to be humble and see a nice challenge. It's going to take time."

But at the same time, he's excited: "It's a dream - to bring your creative force to a different brand. I love Halston. We share a very similar frame of simplicity and elegance as well as the technical approach. I've been an admirer for a long time."

While Halston will definitely be a priority for Schwab, it sounds like he values the ability to have his hands in two different pots. "I would be hesitant to do just one thing — it's important to be able to create and be open-minded." And despite moving to New York for Halston, he "hope[s]" to continue showing Marios Schwab in London. "I wish for London to support me. I love the thought of having two fashion metropolises. London is amazing inspiration and New York is an interesting place to be — it's important what comes out of them."
